Narcotics Prison to Be Built in Bangli
US$1 Million Set Aside to Build Facility to Move Drug Offenders Out of Bali's Kerobokan Prison.
(9/20/2008) NusaBali reports that a custom-built penitentiary for convicted narcotic offenders will soon be constructed on a 2 hectare site in Bangli starting in 2009.

To be built in close proximity to Bangli's current mental health asylum, an allocation of Rp. 9 billion (US$1 million) has been set aside to construct a prison to help house the 400 narcotics offender now imprisoned at Bali's Kerobokan prison. Those convicted of narcotic offenses represent more than half of the current inmates in Bali's main prison.

While little details are available on the new prison, government officials say they are intentionally placing the new prison in a location near Bali's main mental health facility. Those officials hope easy access to the mental health facility will assist jailers in their efforts to rehabilitate convicted drug users.
